The need for clear water



Did you know that most of the oxygen you breathe is actually produced in the ocean?  That’s why it is very important to have clean ocean waters, they are integral to our survival.  The Gulf of Mexico has taken a hard hit with the Deep Horizon oil spill this summer.  The Gulf also made it into the top five salt water areas in terms of biological diversity, according to the Census of Marine Life.  Read more about the "Gulf's rich diversity in peril" on page 6A of the electronic edition of August 3rd edition of the Times.  Are you concerned about the future of the Gulf of Mexico?  Share your thoughts with us here on our blog.
